What is your experience? | Aldous Huxley quotes | Find him on Amazon.

Experience is not what happens to you, it’s how you interpret what happens to you.

Aldous Huxley

Any event that turned your life upside down? Something happened that changed you entirely; you take life more seriously (or jokingly) now.
Have you ever wondered if it was the event that changed things, or was it your understanding of it?

What is the catch?

Two people get fired, leaving one devastated and hopeless and the other trying to turn it into an opportunity to fulfill his/her suppressed dream. Is the devastation because of the event or how the person took it?

Our interpretation of events and experiences is more important than the events themselves. 

What is your experience?

Everybody around us says and believes that with experience, things become easy; you become mature, your understanding grows, your take on life improves, and expertise comes to you. 

But how this happens? Just by continuously working, getting promotions, a good salary, or facing setbacks? No. 

All of this happens with how we perceive and interpret these different events that happen to us and around us, how we handle setbacks, success, learnings, and ourselves.

It’s not the events that happen to us that shape our lives, but how we decide to understand and interpret those events.

Surbhi Mahnot

We all perceive the same things differently, which is precisely why we are not happy, prosperous, or sad in the same manner. Because our take on things impacts our thought processes, mental state, and overall well-being.

My Conclusion:

Practice self-awareness to understand yourself better and create an even better experience for life!
